Most clients do not want to go to trial and we do everything possible to maximize the value of your claim and negotiate a fair settlement pre-litigation —but, sometimes, you have to. Sometimes it’s the court of last resort. If the negligent driver’s insurance company has denied your claim or unfairly reduced your claim because of a pre-existing condition like arthritis or diabetes, it’s the only resort to get you fair compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
When an individual is injured in a car accident, they’ll get medical treatment. Then, after the treatment, the next step is to try to negotiate and settle the claim. Negotiation and settlement of a personal injury claim is dependent on a third party’s cooperation, as well— that third party being auto insurance companies (State Farm, Geico, Liberty Mutual, Progressive, Allstate etc.).
Not all attorneys are equal. The way that an attorney approaches a claim and prepares a Demand Package is very important in whether or not your claim settled for top dollar. An attorney can’t force an insurance company to settle a claim that is made on a client’s behalf. An attorney also can’t force them to offer fair and reasonable money to compensate a client for the pain and suffering that they’ve gone through. What an attorney can do is file a suit if the insurance companies drag their feet, offer a low-value settlement, or deny claim.
Ultimately it is the client’s decision whether they want to accept an offer of settlement, or whether they want to go to trial. However, trial isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It simply may take longer for the client’s claim to be resolved.
Sometimes when you go to trial, if you have strong and competent representation on your side, you can get an outstanding result, which you otherwise would not have received had you accepted a low settlement offer, or simply walked away after your claim was denied.
We are very aware that most clients do not want to go to trial. Nobody wants to have a prolonged fight with an auto insurance company. If push comes to shove, however, and that’s the only option left on the table, then the experienced attorneys at DuBoff & Associates, Chartered gladly take on that challenge. We will file suit.
